I am anticipating an insightful and bold speech from the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu tomorrow when he appears before the U.S. Congress. Much is at stake for Israel these days, and for America! The prophetic scenario revealed by the Bible for these latter days is rapidly unfolding. The Scripture tells us of nations in the latter days which will be fully capable of taking bold stands, and to whom other nations might look for leadership, stepping back from leadership while Israel’s very existence is threatened. (Ezekiel 38:13) The frustration of King David, who experienced similar betrayals from leaders of other nations in Israel’s times of need, is expressed in Psalm 5:8-9,
Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face. For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.
Of course, leaders who turn against Israel, will do so because they have rebelled against the Lord and have sided with the enemies of God’s people. Jesus, the Son of God, said: “Ye shall know them by their fruit” (Matthew 7:16) Could this explain why President Obama will not name Isis as Islamic Terrorists and why he is soft on Iran? With the threats of wars and rumors of wars that we are seeing, the world is looking for a real leader these days. Tomorrow the world will see and hear a real leader for our times, his name is Benjamin Netanyahu. Perhaps this is what President Obama is afraid of. (Proverbs 28:1)
